NOT SO GOOD POINTS Hotel a bit too quiet, could have done with some entertainment, especially when it was so far from village. Bed didn't have a mattress cover on, only sheets. We had dinner... More

Just spent a night here with my husband on our anniversary and it was lovely. Very helpful staff, the room, view and setting was beautiful,,, very impressed with the pool and seating area around the pool. Definitely feels classy and cared for.

They will put you up in the "ghetto house" which is the only one without a view. Otherwise the staff is very sweet. Leaving with a somewhat bitter feeling ........................................................................................

We have just returned after a week at happy cretan & had the most amazing week!!!! Relaxation, sun, good food & drinks, perfect. Upon arrival (11.30pm) we were handed a cold mythos by Dimitri which was much appreciated after a long day of travelling along with some delicious supper. We stayed in a stone suite (234) which was perfect, very... More

My wife and I and 5 year old daughter have just returned after a week at this lovely little hotel.

The staff was great, they helped us on renting a car, suggested places to visit, I would recommend it to everybody. The room was clean, beautiful, and the place is very very nice! Relaxing and well connected to Agia Pelagia (beaches, nice food, 10 mins) and Heraklion (20 mins). I suggest to rent a car as it allows you to... More

We were only planning on staying one night but we ended up using the Happy Cretan as a base for exploring Crete. We had booked one room but after seeing that we were a family with tall teenagers, very friendly host Dimitris gave us an extra room at no cost. Happy Cretan offers great water views, a filling breakfast, has... More

Stayed for 8 days with my wife and kids and we all loved it. The one-bedroom-apartment was clean and modern but had some minor designer-flaws: no showercurtain or door made the bath easily wet, no overhead hanger for the showerhead made shampooing difficult and A/C only in the livingroom made privacy impossible on hot nights. The pool and pooldeck was... More
